A Game of Dwarves. I hoped it was going to be a 3D and simpler version of the wonderful DF, since so far, I can only get a simple outpost going in that game. Now, Game of Dwarves sadly does not contain disasters like weather, flooding, or even... like lava? Underground Lakes or Lava pits I think would have been a good addition, but sadly we do not see those here. The only problem you will EVER face is the underground dungeon... rooms. Which you can dig up, sometimes it holds like a gnome, which is just an entirely useless enemy to put in, since it does NOTHING. Or you might get Orcs or goblins, which are a bit of a problem, but my dwarf guards always just wreck them immedietly.
Also, the game carries little to no challenge whatsoever. Why? Because the Devs added one ability you can use at any time, without restriction which just absolutely ruins challenge. A teleportation ability. You can use it on any dwarf anytime, anywhere, without restriction, and a five second cooldown... WHAT!? So, maybe your dwarf Miner dug up a ruin full of Goblins and Orcs? Simply teleport him out and spawn in your Five Highly trained guards to wreck them. NO CHALLENGE, WHATSOEVER. Now, I find mining in the game useless. I mainly just dig to reach the dungeons, for some kind of excitement. But I found myself just selling the wood I grew and then buying the things I needed, so basically, I had one Dwarf Miner, and about Ten Dwarf Farmers constantly growing wood. This turned out to be MUCH more productive then the slow mining in this game, since you can buy ALL the resources in the game with gold, you really do not even need to mine to be successful.
Now the animations and graphics in this game are bad, ok? There just so basic and dull.
Now, Dwarfs NEVER interact with one another, cannot build relationships, and simply Work, Eat,Sleep,Work,Eat,Sleep. (Etc.)
Alright, I think I am just going list the Pro's and Con's now.
-Casual and easy to learn Lite City Building game. +++
-Basic leveling system, though very basic, it does have it's perks. ++
-Somewhat Funny Story, yeah, it's not good, just somewhat funny with lots of references. +
-A tech tree, yeah, just a basic tech tree.+
-Animations and graphics are dull, but do not take away from the fun of the game.
-The same song keeps repeating... The same Song keeps repeating.... THE SAME SONG KEEPS REPEATING! --
-Small item and furniture variety --
-All the Dwarves look the same -
-Dull Combat and mechanics really ruin it. -
-Not Enough Disasters or Events. --
Now, I got this on a sale for $2.00, this game is not worth the asking price of $10.00, since it feels like an alpha game, more around $5.00 - $4.00 is more what it is worth. You should pick it up on a Sale IF you are into City Builders. It's an Ok game, which I enjoyed playing, which is why I am giving it a thumbs up! :)
